I made meatballs this afternoon. I make a bunch of them at a time and freeze them, then I can pop out a few any time I want to make spaghetti with meatballs. And I get to control what goes in them rather than buy the commercially produced variety with their strange chemicals and preservatives. Woo. On the other hand, after rolling 45 meatballs – all that would fit on my rack – I looked at the remaining meatball mix and said,
“Meatloaf! It’s what’s for dinner.”
I baked them on a rack, by the way, so that they wouldn’t sit in their own fat.
I also made pumpkin granola this afternoon. I’ll add the tweaks to my granola recipe but I must say, yum. Seriously yum. I’m loving this homemade granola thing. I’m leaving the fruit out entirely and can add some cranberries or whatever when I want, if I want. And I use probably too many nuts but nuts are good for you provided you don’t eat a million at a time.
I didn’t get the vacuuming done again. It’s penciled in for Thursday along with super cleaning the downstairs kitchen and bathroom with the steam cleaner I recently purchased. I mostly bought it for upstairs because despite Dad having a homeworker who cleaned 4 hours per month, there are really frightening stains. I’m hoping the steam cleaner will clean and sanitize.
Tomorrow’s schedule includes getting to the post office and going over to see Dad. As well as do my Walmart shopping. This plan is dependent on whether I sleep tonight, of course. Last night sucked. No reason. Just couldn’t sleep.
